.28 or .21 depends on what you are doing. If you just want to smoke your friend in a drag race across a field, get a .28 and rock and roll. If you want to win real races, a .21 is your best bet.

To them, anything not Losi is junk even if you stomp them with it. Anything sold by Losi is the best, even if it's junk (Losi/GRP motors come to mind). Don't EVER listen to a Losi fanboy, even if you run a Losi.
I think it is ironic how someone goes on a rant saying not to listen to a Losi Fanboy, when they are probably a Mugen Fanboy. I guess you should never listen to a word I say then just because I support a company...?

Well, I used to run for Mugen but now I switched to Shepherd.

I'm an onroad guy so don't listen to me for that reason I only dabble with offroad.

Nothing wrong with supporting a company or being a fan. I've just noticed that there are a small number of extreme Losi fans that will bad mouth anything else and I get the impression that those are the people he has been listening to since they are about the only ones that would say such things about Mugen. Sure there are plenty of people that would suggest something else but only the nutcases or completely uninformed think Mugens aren't durable.

And based on your posts I would call you a Losi fan, not a Losi fanboy.

What do I mean about Losi fanboys? Well you see, in addition to the normal Losi fans there are some (maybe 20% of all Losi owners) that are like some sort of raging fanatics about Losi stuff. They are really freakin nuts. They will never say anything good about anything else and would rather run a wore out, obsolete, 10 year old Losi than anything else and swear it's the best. These are the people you see running Losi/GRP tires on a track where Prolines are a second faster and swear up and down that their Losi/GRP motors will smoke a Vspec and try to tell you Novarossi makes the cheapest POS motors on the planet. Even Losi guys should not listen to anything these guys say.

And for the record, I'm not bad mouthing Losi here, they make great stuff. I just can't stand a small percentage of their owners.
I cant stand a large percentage of there owners lol

I own a D8E, Losi 2.0E, Hyper 9E, Caster EX1 PRO, Jammin X2 with Tekno Kit, and 2 Mugem MBX6'S (1 with a Tekno kit and 1 with the RC Monster Conversion) and the MBX6 is by far the best built (JAMMIN IS A CLOSE 2ND)and handles fantastic. I liked it so much that I bought a MBX6T.

You can not go wrong with a Mugen!!
